Rising Melbourne-based DJ/producer Ben Beezy is pleased to announce a brand new release with the arrival of ‘In The Crowd’, an emotive, powerful spectral cut, littered with ultra textured arrangements, lifted from the new compilation series 2CRY4, out through 2DIY4 the sister label of DIYNAMIC, founded by acclaimed DJ/producer Solomun.
Ben says: “In The Crowd is written about moments when you find yourself out from home, in deep reflection and overwhelming emotion. It can be on a train, dance floor, walking down a busy street or late night house party. I’ve had the most intense inner reflections in these scenarios but the most vivid always occur late at night, after becoming separated from friends, early in the morning under a sky of lights, surrounded by thousands of strangers, far from home and listening to amazing electronic dance music. Ideas, anxiety and solace. At that moment I’m in the crowd, having a moment to myself and this record talks about that feeling. I hope it makes you feel something good.”
The second in a three-part series, Part One released earlier this year featured Berlin artist Novaa, classically trained Sydney-based producer Oliver Henry with Keepa and fellow Australian experimental producer Ghostlike featuring MADAMi. Part Two sees Ben’s production alongside Aldebaran & Filippo Nardini and Garud feat. James Buttery.
Nine previously unheard tracks of gentle indie-electronica with drive are bound together on these releases to put the listener into a certain state: contemplative. A very dreamy and unintrusive sound that shows the inherent beauty in melancholia. The stirring voices, surrounded by atmospheric soundscapes, immediately paints pictures of romance, heartache and sometimes hope in your mind.
